What Critters Have You Spotted in Your Yard?

FB user Kimmy Potts sent us the cutest video of a raccoon hiding under her deck. Amie Coombs sent in a photo of a couple of cute foxes she saw while walking near Corn Lake in Grand Junction.

What Does the Fox Say?

I'm surprised at how many fox sightings we had overall. Those little fellas are everywhere right now. Usually, these are cute little Kit Foxes that live out in the wash in Mesa and Montrose counties. The Kit Fox are North America's smallest foxes weighing no more than three to six pounds.
